Invertebrate Fishery

Crab fishing

Invertebrate species are of great economic importance in the Bay of Fundy. Lobster, Jonah crab, rock crab and sea urchin fisheries are monitored and studied by our staff. Lobster research includes studies on the early life cycle, habitat and migration patterns. Jonah crab, rock crab and sea urchin are newer fisheries to the region and Section staff monitor their populations with the help of the commercial fishing industry.
